Sandra Hoyle | President DMF
Are you aware of the mission of the Del Mar Foundation? It is to promote civic pride and cohesiveness, acquire and preserve open space, improve beaches and parklands, raise and grant funds, and sponsor diverse cultural programs and community events in Del Mar. The Foundation has a grant budget to support organizations and projects or activities that further its mission. You might remember our support of the Beach Safety Center, our assistance with the acquisition of the Shores property, or the grants we’ve provided to organizations such as the Del Mar Historical Society, Del Mar TV Foundation, Friends of the Powerhouse and the Del Mar Fire Department CERT Program (to name just a few). The Del Mar Foundation has a lengthy history providing contributions to enhance the Del Mar community.
The Del Mar Foundation was excited to begin 2019 supporting our community with three grant awards totaling over $17,000. We presented a grant to the Del Mar Lifeguards for the purchase of Mobi Mats, a lightweight, non-slip portable roll-out ADA/ABA/AODA beach access pathway for individuals of all abilities – pedestrians, wheelchair users and strollers, to be used during the summer. We delivered another grant to Del Mar Community Connections to support their Tuesday Lunch Connection, a program where our more mature neighbors enjoy each other’s company and a nice meal together at the Community Building. Finally, we are supporting the Friends of the Del Mar Library to provide their Zone for Babies and Kids (ZBK).
These awards are available because of the generosity of the Foundation’s donors and supporters who make it possible for us to assist Del Mar’s fantastic non-profits. We appreciate you for helping the Foundation make Del Mar a great place to live and play. If your organization is looking for funding for a program or project that will benefit Del Mar, please contacts us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858.635.1363 for further conversation.
